Yep, that's how I handle it. Depending on ground water temp, usually takes me 30 mins to cool the wort, ergo all hopstands for me are approx. 30...
Huh. Guess I am going to need a bigger bucket!
Nice scavenging @Clint. Going to try no chill?
Looks pretty similar, and like your brew, it kept at it for a good 24+ hours. Really messy. Might be that is was a higher gravity beer than I...
And for those who have dogs, spent grains make excellent dog biscuits. Loads of simple recipes on the interwebs.

Total investment here is probably about 5 pounds, although I don't really know what DME costs on your side of the pond. This is probably the...
Close up of harvested yeast from previous starter:

Growler with star san,...
If I knew there would be math, I never would have started homebrewing!!!!
It's actually pretty simple, and the Brulosophy guys themselves tend to...
I have been doing this for my last 10 or so brews:
Allows me to have a few yeasts strains always...
Sadly, no. I made it to several taprooms over the weekend (holiday weekend with friends in town), but we didn't make it there. Hope the brew...
